Payroll platform: Managing lodgement options within a finalised pay run

Overview

Single Touch Payroll (STP) legislation requires employers to report wages, PAYG withholding, and superannuation information directly to the ATO using an online payroll system. The Australian government introduced it in 2018 to encourage small businesses to be more compliant in the way they report superannuation or PAYG instalments to employees.

The Lodgement Options feature within the finalised pay run module allows you to re-lodge a pay run with the ATO. You can also use this feature to review lodgement information and verify the data is correct, and that the ATO received your submission.

So you have now managed your lodgement options within your pay run and you are now wondering what next can I do. There are two recommendations I would make on this front and they are:

  • Payroll pay run reporting: Pay run comparison The Pay Run Comparison Reporting feature allows you to create a report that you can use to compare your organisation's finalised pay runs over a chosen time period. 
  • Payroll pay run reporting: Pay run inclusions The Pay Run Inclusions Reporting feature allows you to create a report on the inclusions your organisation has processed within your finalised pay runs, with the ability to narrow this data down by employing entity, pay schedule and location.
